“Does this look like a couple on the verge of divorce to you?”

That question, posed by Twitter user “IrishSpy” was accompanied by photos of the Palins together last weekend at the swearing-in of Alaska Governor Sean Parnell:
Sarah and Todd Palin, July 2009, Fairbanks

Yesterday, just after 5 pm, blogger Robert Stacy McCain wrote in The American Spectator, “Divorce Todd? Have you seen Todd? I may be just a renegade hockey mom, but I’m not blind!” — SARAH PALIN, 5:35 p.m. ET

“PREVIOUSLY (5:08 p.m.): ‘Completely false,’ said a source close to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, in response to claims by Web sites that she and husband Todd are divorcing.

“The rumor appears to have originated with one blogger who cites an unnamed ‘source’ and claims a recent National Enquirer article as having led to ‘splitsville.’

” ‘Sarah is finished with Todd and has decided to end their marriage,’ the blogger ‘Gryphen’ posted on an anti-Palin blog…

“…Tim Lindell of the Conservatives For Palin blog, who explains that the ‘ludicrous rumor being spread by Alaskan CNN stringer Dennis Zaki.’ Lindell writes that the ‘Gryphen blogger’ is a friend of Zaki’s’ as are other well-known anti-Palin bloggers.”

Just one more reminder for all of us to check the sources before believing anything we see, read, or hear especially when it’s offered at the end of a very bad week for an allegedly popular president and his must-have programs.

IrishSpy and so many others on Twitter made this “hash-tag” famous in June: #CNNfail
